On the Anniversary of September 11, 2001

On the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, we should pause and remember the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in this vicious and cowardly terrorist attack on our nation. Their loss will always be mourned and their sacrifice will never be forgotten. We should also reflect on and commend the heroes, including LIUNA members, who participated in the 9/11 response and clean-up efforts and later the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and construction of the Flight 93 Memorial.

On behalf of the entire General Executive Board and the hard working men and women of LIUNA, I urge that we re-dedicate ourselves to honoring the memory of those who were lost on 9/11 and share our gratitude with those who responded so courageously to the devastating attacks.
